Have you ever wondered how the reading brain stores thousands and thousands of words for instant and effortless word retrieval? Once words are learned, they are not forgotten and become part of our sight vocabulary. You may be thinking well what is a sight word?” Is it a phonetically regular word or a phonetically irregular word or both? Come join me as we explore why all words want to grow up to be sight words!!
